Ferrara is a city where bicycles reign supreme: the percentage of those who get around by bike here is among the highest in Europe. Its large, mainly pedestrian historical centre encourages their use, and the landscape from the edge of the city outward is abundant with easy, safe bicycle paths, often next to waterways.
